The Veins of the Thoracic and Abdominal Viscera, 
generally accompany their Arteries ; and the same is ob- 
servable in the small Branches belonging to Membranous 

The Figure of the Veins is similar to that of the Ar- 
teries ; and, upon comparing the Area of their Trunks 
with the collective Area of their Branches, like them, 
too, they are perceived to be Conical ; the Base of the 
Cone being formed by the Branches, and the Apex by 
the Trunks. 

The size and number of the Veins is in general so much 
greater than that of their corresponding Arteries, that 
when the Vessels of a Membranous Part are distended by 
Injections of different colours, the Veins are observed in 
a great measure to conceal the Arteries : In the It

There is much greater variety among the Trunks of 
Veins, with respect to situation and division into Branch- 
es, than is observable among the Arteries. 

The variety in Nature, in this respect, is such, that 
the Veins of every Subject differ a little from those of 

The Veins are capable of suffering greater distension 
than the Arteries, yet are more frequently ruptured. 

The Anastomoses are greater and more frequent in 
Veins than in Arteries, the Blood being more in danger 
of an interruption in the former. 

The Communications of the Veins are often by large 
Trunks, whereas those of the Arteries, excepting in a 
few places, are by small Brandies only. 

Where the Veins are exposed to Muscular action, they 
are furnished with Valves, which are Semilunar Folds 
continued from the inner side of the Vessels, and placed 
in pairs at irregular distances.

posed to the Microscope, it has the appearance of Glo- 
luile-. dillused through a liquid. 

When taken from the Body, and allowed to stand for 
some tune, it separates into a Watery Fluid called Serum, 
and a Coagulum termed Clot, Crut/r, or CrasMittwiifiiin, of 
which there is commonly about three parts of the latter 
to one of the former. The Coagulum again i- separable 
into a red Colouring Matter, or the lied Globules of the 
Blood, and Gluten or Fibrin. 

The Serum is of a yellowish-green colour, slightly Al- 
kaline, containing Muiiate of Soda, and Phosphates of 
Soda and Lime, and about 12 per cent, of Albumen. 

The Crassamentum is of a dark red colour, acquiring, 
however, a more florid hue on exposure to the Air. 
When washed in Water, it is separated into the red Glo- 
bules, and the Fibrin, which is of a white colour, and of 
an elastic and Fibrous nature. 

The Colouring Matter is supposed to be composed of 
Albumen, Sub-phosphate of Iron, and perhaps Gelatin 
united with Soda. The Fibrin is insoluble in Water, 
but is dissolved by Acids and Alkalis. JCxposed to heat, 
it gives the usual Animal products.

From Hie upper side of the Arch of the Aorta* three 
Large Arteries arise, which supply the Head, Neck, and 
Superior Extremities. 

Of these three Arteries, one on the right side, termed 
Innominala, or Communis, soou divides into the Right 
Carotid, and Right Subclavian Artery. Tab. LXXXV. *. 

The other two are the Left Carotid, and Left Subcla- 
vian, which come off in separate Trunks. Tab. CLVIII. 
Fig. 1. O, P. 

The above is the ordinary way in which the Carotids 
and Subclavians come off from the Aorta, but there is 
i ousidcrable variety in this respect ill different Bodies. 
Sometimes there are two common Trunks from which 
these Arteries take their rise ; at other times there are 
four original Arteries from the Aoita, and iu some rare 
cases, the Right Subclavian comes off from the left end 
of the Arch of the Aorta, and passes behind the Trachea. 

In some instances, the two Carotids come off from the 
Arteria Iuuominata. 

Carotid Arteries. — The Carotid Arteries, Tab. 
CLIX. after emerging from the Thorax, ascend upon the 
fore part of the Vertebrae, on each side of the Neck, be-

the Axillary Artery, by Branches separate or united, and 
supply the parts about the top of the Shoulder, and upper,

It is sometimes so small as scarcely to reach this part of 
the Hand. More frequently it is a considerable Artery, 
sending Branches to I lie Ball of the Thumb and superfi-

At the under part of the Fore-arm, the Radial Artery

which runs deep among the Flexor Muscles, and soon di- 
vides into Branches, which ascend and supply the parts 
about the posterior and inn-r side of the Flbow and Cap- 
sule of the Joint. — In the Groove behind the Inner 
Condyle of the Os Humeri, it communicates by distinct 
Anastomoses with the Profunda Inferior, or with the Ra- 
mus Anastomoticus, scut down from the Humeral Artery ; 

The a Posterior, Tab. CXXXVUI. No. S. 
which comes oil" at the upper end of the Interosseous Li- 
gament, perforating Substance immediately after 
coming oft' from the Trunk., and going to the back pail of 
the Fore-ami. 

From this place it sends upwards a Recurrent Branch, 
which communicates, upon the back, part of the Elbow, 
with the other Recurrent Arteries, and with the Branches 
sent down from the Humeral Aricry, and forms along with 
these a Plexus ol" Vessels upon the back part of the Joint. 

The Interossea is afterwards continued downwards, 
and is chiefly dispersed upou the Bellies of the Extensor 
Muscles of the Hand and Fingers, being commonly ex- 
hausted before it reaches the Wrist : 

The Interossea Anterior, Tab. CXXXVII. No. 22. 
which commonly conies off immediately below the former, 
but at other times in common with it. Now and then, 
both are from the Radial Artery ; and this is commonly 
the case where that Artery takes iis origin in the Upper 
Arm. Sometimes the Interossea; arise by a common 
Trunk from the Humeral Artery. 

The Anterior Interosseous Artery is considerably larger 
than the Posterior, but is only about half the size of the 
Ulnar Artery, from which it springs. 

It runs close upon the fore part of the Interosseous Li- 
gament, and furnishes IS ranches iu the Muscles and deep 
parts Upon the anterior side of the Fore-arm, and the Nu-

Near the Wrist, the principal part of the Artery perfo- 
rates the Ligament, and goes to the posterior side of the 
Carpus and back of the Hand, dividing into Branches 
which inosculate with others of the Posterior Interos- 
seous and Radial Arteries. The other part of the Artery 
is spent about the Ligaments on the tore-side of the

At these clefts, each of the three Digital Arteries is 
divided into two Branches, one of which Branches o£ 
each Division runs along the Anterior iladjid .Margin of 
one Finger, aud the other along the Anterior Linar Mar- 
gin of the Finger next it ; — the tinee D.gital Arteries 
thus supplying the Margins ol" all the Fingers, excepting 
the inner' Margin of the Little Finger, and the outer 
Margin of the Lidex.

Internal and External Mammary Arteries,

Several of the Lower Left Intercostals unite into a

Spine, about the middle of the Thorax,— behind, but 
sometimes before the Trunk of the Aorta, — to the right 
side. Tab. CXLIII.p, q, t. 

The Vena Azygos, vel Vena sine Pari, thus origi- 
nally formed by the Lower Left Intercostals, ascends on 
the fore part of the Spine over the Intercostal Arteries, 
at the right side of the Aorta. Tab. CLXXTX. 

At its lower extremity, it generally communicates with 
one of the Lumbar or Renal Veins, and not unfrcquently 
with the Trunk of the Inferior Cava. 

Upon the Spine, it receives the Right Intercostals and 
the Right Bronchial Vein; and turning forwards over 
the root of the Great Pulmonary Vessels of that side, it 
terminates in the Superior Cava, directly before that Vein 
perforates the Pericardium.

Blood-Vessels of the Diaphragm. 

The Diaphragm is supplied with Arteries from various 
sources, viz. those entering its upper pan lioin the Inter- 
nal Mammary, alriady described ; also small Branches 
from the Intercostal and Lumbar Arteries. It-, principal 
Brandies, however, are the Phrenic, or Diaphragmatic, 
or Inferior Diaphragmatic. 

The Arteri* Diaphragmatic*, Tab. CXLIX. 
CLXXIX. are two in number, one on each side, which 
arise from the fore part of the Aorta as soon as it enters 
the Abdomen. 

In general, their origins are distinct from each other, 
but sometimes they arise from a common Trunk ; and 
now and then, one or both originate from the root of 
the Cceliaca, or even from the Benal or Lumbar Ar- 

They afterwards go obliquely upwards and outwards 
over the Crura of the Diaphragm, spread out into many 
Branches, which are chiefly dispersed upon its fleshy- 
sides, and inosculate with those which enter at its upper

from the left portion or side of the Colon : 

The Vena Duodenal is, which returns the Blood from 
the left portion of the Duodenum. 

The Mesenterica Minor commonly terminates in the 
Vena Splenica, though frequently in the Mesenterica

The Gastrica Superior, which comes from the small 
curvature of the Stomach, and Omentum Minus, and goes 
into the Splenic near its termination, or into the begin- 
ning of the Vena Porta. 

The Splenic and Inferior Mesenteric Veins, after re- 
ceiving their respective Branches, form a short Trunk 
which joins the Superior Mesenteric. 

The Vena Mesenterica Superior, vel Major. 
The Great Mesenteric Vein, situated at the underside 
of the Artery, receives—

Gastrica Dextra. 

The Great Mesenteric Vein, formed by the Branches 
mentioned above, passes over the beginning of the corre- 
sponding Artery, and joins the Vena Splenica. 

The Trunk formed by these Veins runs under the head 
of the Pancreas, and here obtains the name of Vena Par- 
tee, or Vena Porlarvm. 

The Vena Portjs, Tab. XCIII. Fig. 2. Z, formed

between the Wyinjdiysis Pubis and root of the Penis, and 
proceeds aloii" 1 (lie Dorsum as far as [lie Glaus, adhering 
closely to the Ligamentous Substance which incloses the 
Corpora Cavernosa, and sending Branches to it and to 
the Integuments. 

In some very rare cases, the Pudic Artery, instead of 
passing between the Sacro-ischiatic Ligaments, has been 
seen running first by the under part and side of the Bladder, 
and then over the lateral portion of the Prostate Gland, 
to its place of destination. 

In the Female, the Pudic Artery has the same general 
course as in the Male. 

After reaching the inner side of the Tuber of the Os 
Ischium, it is cm ended forwards, and sends Branches to 
the Anus, Perineum, end of the Vagina, and Labia Ex- 
terna, and terminates in the Clitoris somewhat in a simi- 
lar maimer as in the Penis. The Branch, which, in the 
Male, goes to the Bulb of the Urethra, in the Female, 
passes to the outer end of the Vagina.

from the Uterus : 

The Vena Magna Ipsius Penis, which runs along 
the middle of the Dorsum, and is often double to near 
the root of the Penis ; after which it passes between this 
and the Arch of the Pubis, forming a complicated Plexus 
which surrounds the Neck of the Bladder and Prostutt; 
Gland, and sending out Branches which terminate in 
others at the sides of the Bladder. Like other Veins 
subject to pressure, the Vena Penis is provided with

The Arteria Epigastrica, Tab. CXI. h. Tab. 
CXLI. r, goes off from the inner side of the External 
Iliac Artery, immediately before thai Vessel gels under the 
Ligament o/PovvAKT. 

At its origin, it is a little bent downwards ; and about 
half an inch from the place where it first comes off, it 
crosses obliquely upwards and inwards, at the inner

Near its origin, it sends Brunches to the adjacent parts 
of the Pubes, one of which, in the .Male, frequently inns 
in the Spermatic Cord, and ill the Female to the Bound 
Ligament of the Uterus. 

Under the Umbilicus, it generally divides into two 
Branches, variable in their si/.e ; one directed towards 
(lie Umbilicus, the other continued in the line of the Rec- 

It furnishes Branches to the Muscles, Integuments, and 
Membranes of the fore part of the Abdomen, communi- 
cates in several places with the Lumbar Arteries, and ter- 
minates a little above the Umbilicus, where it forms seve- 
ral distinct though small Anastomoses with the under end 
of the Mammaria Interna.

..Interior, Tab. CLI. g. almost as large as the Epigastric 
Artery, arises nearly opposite to it, though frequently a 
little lower, immediately behind the under end of the Fal- 
lopian Ligament. In some rare cases, it comes off in 
common with the ['".pigastric, or from the beginning of the 
Femoral Artery, or from the Profunda Femoris. 

It runs at the inner edge of the Crest or Spine of the 
Os Ilium, between the Transversalis and Obliquus Inter- 
nus, till it arrives near the Vertebra: of the Loins. 

It gives Branches to the Psoas, lliacus, and Sai-tonus, 
to the under end of the Obliqui and Transversa Abdomi- 
nis, between which it sometimes extends a considerable 
way. At length it communicates with the Epigastric, and 
with the Inferior Intercostal and t lie Lumbar Arteries. 

Arteria Femoralis. 

The Femoral, or Crural Ahtert, Tab. CLI. it- 
he continuation of the External Iliac,— passes out of the 
Ibdomen between the Ligament of PoePART and Brim 
f the Pelvis. 

At iis lii-t exit, it is situated superficially over the Ball 
if the Os Frmons, hai ing the inner edge of the common 
nd of the Psoas and lliacus Inteiinis between it and the 
apsular Ligament of the Joint. 

At the top of the Thigh it lorms the Inguinal or Com- Art

farther down, it is lodged deep in an angular Cavity at 
the upper and inner part of (he Thigh, with the Rectus 
and Sartorius upon the outer, and the Triceps Adductor 
Femoris upon the inner side of it. From this part it de- 
scends at the inside of the Thigh, turning gradually back- 
wards till it readies the Ham, or rather, strictly speak- 
ing, having the Thigh-bone first upon its outer, then 
upon its fore part. 

From the Inguinal or common Femoral Artery, a few 
small Branches are sent oft' to the Skin of the Abdomen, 
to the Superficial Muscles and Inguinal Glands, aud to 
the common Integuments at the upper part of the Thigh ; 
also one or two tubers, lermed I'lidiccc Ktterna?^ and by 
some Authors Pirdicct Kitcrua' Superior el Inferior, to 
the Pubes, to the Integuments of die External Parts of

part of the Femoral Artery, anastomose with those of 
the Epigastric, and others with the Arteries of the Penis. 
Tab. CLVIII. Fig. 2. 

About two inches below the Ligament of Poupart, 
and sometimes, though rarely, about three inches, and 
in some still more rare cases, directly under this Li- 
gament, the common Femoral Arlcrv divides, somewhat 
like the common Iliac, into anterior and posterior parts : 
— The former is the Femoral Artery strictlv so called, 
the latter is termed Profunda Femoris. Tab. CLI. 


i Femoris- 

The Arteria Profunda, also called Vasta Poste- 
rior, vel Muscularis Femoris, concealed at first by 
the proper Femoral Trunk, gives off at its origin from 
that Artery small Branches, arising separately or in a 
common Trunk, and dispersed upon the Integuments, 
Muscles, and Capsular Ligament, at the upper and fore 
part of the Thigh. 

It gives next, from if- origin also, two large Branches, 
—the Circumflexa Interna, and Circumflexa Externa, 
— which run in opposite directions at the upper part of 
the Thigh. 

The Circumflexa Interna, Tab. CLIV./, though 
most frcnuentK coming nil' from the beginning of the Pro- 
funda, often arises higher than it, from the common Fe- 
moral ; aud there are now and then two of them, one a 
little lower than the other, or sometimes it comes off in

In the termination of the Absorbents, whether in the 
Thoracic Duct or in the Red Veins, there is always one, 
and commonly two Valves, to prevent the contents of the 
Duct or of the Veins from passing into them. 

The Valves promote the general course of the Lymph 
and Chyle, ami prevent the retrograde motion of these 
riuiils within their Vessels. 

The Lymphatics take in the Fluids applied to their Ori- 
fices by Capillary Attraction, and afterwards by a power in- 
herent in themselves, and by their contractile nature, con- 
duct them into the Mass of Blood, whereby they prevent 
Morbid Accumulations. — They absorb the thinner parts 
of the secreted fluids so as to give them a proper consis- 
tance, — take up solid parts originally formed for tempo- 
rary purposes, to make way for others that are to be more 
permanent, &c. The Lacteals in a similar manner re- 
ceive the Chyle from the Intestines, for the nourishment 
of the Body. 

The Conglobate Glands, or Glands of the Absorbent 
\ esstls, are found solitary or in groups in various parts of 
the Body, and are situated in the Cellular Substance under 
the Skin, generally near the great Blood-vessels, or over the 
Trunks of the Vessels belonging to the different Viscera. 
They are chiefly found at the beudings of the Knee and 
Thigh ; about the Vessels in the Pelvis ; between the 
plies of the Mesentery, where they are in greater abun- 
dance than in any other part of the Body ; about the 
Vessels going to the oilier Viscera of the Abdomen ; 
about the Vessels in both Mediastina, especially the 
Bronchi ; at the inner part of the Arm ; in the Axilla ; 
about the large Vessel* of the Neck ; under the Lower 
Jaw ; before and behjnd the Ear. They have not yet 
been found upon the Hands or Feet, nor in the Cavity of 
the Cranium ; and scarcely have any ever been obscrud 
upon the Fore-arms or Legs ; and only a small stiasrgliii'.; 
Gland is occasionally met with upon the superficial parts

i different parts of the Body,. 

Tlieir colour also \ 
and at different times 

Id young Subjects, they are generally largest, and of 
a reddish or brown colour, but become smaller and paier 
with increasing age; and immediately under the skin 
they are redder and tinner than within the large Cavities, 

In the Mesentery, they are of a pale colour ; about the 
Bronchi, they are almost black. 

They have a smooth, dense, Membranous Covering 

Their Coat is connected to the Glandular part by a 
Cellular Membrane, which, according to Dn Hallir, 
is pervaded by a .Siuius l'lvpiiiis full of Globule-, wlnih, 
Mr Hewson supposed, afterwards form the red Glo- 
bules of the Blood. 

Like other Glands, they are supplied with Arteries, 
Veins, and Nerves, which they derive from those of the 
adjacent parts. 

They are described by some Anatomists as being com- 
posed of Cells internally, while others consider thera as 

a Congeries of to/ivoluttd Absorbent Vessels Most of 

the Glands have much of the former, but many of them of 
the latter appearance. 

The Absorbents entering into the Glands, are called 
Vasa Inferinfia. When they approach, or come in con- 
tact with the Gland, they split into radiated Branches, 
which, after spreading out upon it, penetrate into its Sub- 
stance, where they divide almost to infinity, in some parts 
coiling up upon themselves ; then they rejoin, and pass 
out at the opposite side. 

The greater part of the Absorbents, approaching a 
Gland, terminate in it in this manner, while others turn 
aside, or go over it, and terminate in other Absinbt-ntt, 
or in other Glands, but at such a distance that virulent 
matter may enter the mass of blood without being at first 

From the opposite side of the Glands, the Vessels go 
out nearly in the manner they entered them, and are there 
termed Vasa Efferentia. These are frequently, though 
by no means always, fewer in number, but larger than the 
/ II--U hifirentia. 

Most of the Absorbents go through several Glands, but 
in some parts through one only, befoie they reath tlieir 
general terminations. Few appear to enter the Bed 
\ eius without previously having penetrated one or more 

The Lymph and Chyle are strained through the Glands 
by which they arc supposed to undergo certain changes, 
— but the nature of these changes has not yet beeu asccr- 
t::ined, though they are fuund to be as essential to the 
Absorbent Vessels as the Ganglia are to the Nervous

The Superficial Absorbents of the Lower Extremities, 
consist of numerous Vessels^ which one imbedded in the 
Cellular Substance, between the Skin mid Muscles. 

They belong to the Integuments in general, and are 
much more numerous than the Subcutaneous Red Veins. 

They can be traced from the Toes, round which they 
form a Plexus. 

From the Toes several Branches, likewise forming a 
Plexus, ruo over the top of the Foot, to the inner part 
of the Leg, and from thai aloin^ the corresponding part 
of the Knee. Tab. CLXI. Fig. 1. Tab. CLXXVII. 
Fig. 2. 

From the outer part of the. Foot, another Plexus arises, 
which runs along the outside of the Leg, where it splits 
into two divisions, one of which crosses obliquely over 
the fore part of the Tibia, to the Lymphatics at the in- 
ner side of the Knee. Tab. CLXI. Fig. 3. 

The other division passes partly lo the Popliteal 
Glands, some ascending upon the outer and back part of 
the Thigh. Tab. CLXI. Fig. 3. Tab. CLXXVII. 
Fig- 2. 

The Popliteal Glands, Tab. CLX. Fig. 3. Tab. 
CLXXVII. Fig. '£. are commonly two or three in num- 
ber, and are situated near the Artery of the same name ; 
but frequently they are so small, and so much buried in 
Fat, as to be discovered with difficulty. 

From the Sole another Plexus of Lymphatics arises, 
and joins those upon the Leg already described. 

From the inside of the Knee a Plexus runs up, consist- 
ing of from twelve to twenty Trunks, which pass after- 
wards on the fore and inner part of the Thigh to the 
Groin. Tab. CLXI. Fig. 2. Tab. CLXXVII. Fig. 2.

trate the Inguinal Glands. Tab. CLXI. Fig. 2. 

The Inguinal C/tuids are generally from six or eight 
to a dozen in number, and are of very dill'crciit sizes ; but 
sometimes the number is smaller, in consequence of two 
or more of them beiug united into one large Gland. Tab.

Tab. CLXII. 

The Deep-seated Lymphatics of the Lower JCitr, w.v'/„, 
are situated among the Muscles. — They accompany the 
Blood-vessels, and are few when compaicd with the Sub- 
cutaneous Set. 

In several places, one only has been yet observed on 
each side of the Trunks of the Arteries, though, in 
others, they are somewhat more numerous, forming a 
Plexus over the Blood-vessels. 

They arise from the sides of the Toes, and from the 
deep parts of the Sole, accompanying the Plantar Arte- 
ries ; and, after reaching the Leg, they run up with lite 
Posterior Tibial Artery to the Ham. 

In the Ham, they lie close upon the Trunk of the Ar- 
tery, and enter the Popliteal Glands. 

Besides these, there are- .similar hut smaller Lympha- 
tics, which begin upon the upper part of the Foot, and 
afterwards accompany the Ann rinr Tibial, and the Fibu- 
lar Arteries, receiving Branches from the deep parts of 
the fore and outer side of the Leg. 

The Anterior Tibial and the Fibular Lymph a tics, 
terminate with the Posterior Tibial in the Glands of the 

From the Popliteal Glands, two and sometimes more 
Trunks of considerable si/.e are sent out, which accom- 
pany the Femoral Artery, and, at different distances, 
communicate with each other, by Blanches which pass 
ol>ii(|Lielv across t he Artery. 

At the upper part of the Thigh, they enter the under- 
most of the Inguinal Glands, where the Lymph of the 
Superficial and dccp-scaicd Absorbents of the Limb is 
mixed and incorporated. Tab. CLXII. CLXXVII. 

The Superficial Lymphatic, of the Senium enter the 
upper and inner inguinal Glands; those deeper seated 
passing with the Lymphatics of the Testicle iuto the Ab-

The Superficial Lymphatics of the Par's begin at the 
Prepuce, and form a few Trunks which run principally 
upon the Dorsum Penis, receiving in their passage 
Branches which turn round from its Inferior Surface. 

In some Subjects, they unite into Trunks iu the middle

of the Dorsum Penis, which afterwards separate into 

ji:. hi ami left parts.

The Deep-seated Lymphatic* of the Penis arise from 
the Gkns, and from the P.udy of the Penis, and accom-

The Lymphatics of the Testicle are numerous, aud are 
among the largest of the whole Body ; some of them ex- 
ceedii.g the size of a Crow-quill. 

They arise from the Coats and Substance of the Tes- 
ticle, and from the Epididymis, and run with the Sper-

in tiie Lumbar Glands.— In their passage, they have few 
communications witii each other. Tub. CLXXVIII.

Some of them go into the Glands situated about the 
Iliac or the Lumbar Blood-vessels. The 1/iiu GIhjhI*,

Glands of the Groin, and one of them is generally found 
larger than the rest, and placed at the inner edge of Poi'-

External Iliac Artery, there are others situated on the 
outside of it, upon the Psoas. Of these one part passes 
up to the Lumbar Plexus, and goes under the Aorta in

The Lacteal Vessels, so called from conveying a Fluid 
of the colour of Milk, begin upon the inner Surface 
of the Intestines. Each Lacteal takes its origin upon 
one of the Villi by numerous short radiated Branch- 
. es, and each Branch is furnished with an Orifice for im- 
bibing the Chyle. 

From the Villi, the Lacteals run a considerable way

The Trunk of the Inferior Maxillary Nerve, having 
parted with the Lingual Nerve, directs its course between 
the Pterygoid Muscles to the Postcriur Foramen of the

The Stria;, turning round the Medulla Oblongata, ap- 
ply themselves lo the Tuber Annulare, from which they 
receive an addition of Substance, and theu get to the side 
of the Portio Dura. 

The Portio Dura, sometimes also called Sympathe- 
tic/is Minor, arises from that part of the Brain which is 
common to the Pons Varolii, Crura Cerebelli, and 
Medulla Oblongata ; and, at its origin, is situated upon 
the inner side of the Portio Mollis. Tab. LXIX.

Some pass between the Plates which form the Septa 
of the Gyri ; others go through Holes between the Os- 
M-oii- l'la'tes ol" the Lamina Spiralis ; but by much the 
^iv.iir-r number perforate the sides of the Modiolus, bc- the Septum of the Gyri and the Lamina Spiralis. 

The larger Fibrilke run upon the Membrane covering 
the Lamina Spiralis ; while the smaller go from ilk- Mo- 
diolus, between the Osseous Sepia, and on the inner 
sides of the Gyri, to be dispersed upon the Membrane 
lining them. 

The remaining Fibrillse perforate the Plate common 
to the Modiolus and Jnfundibuluin, and vanish upon the 
I hi half-tum of the Lamina Spiialis and the Cupola of 
t lie Cochlea. 

Upon the Osseous part of the Lamina Spiralis, the 
Nerves have the common appearance ; but upon the 
Membranous Portion, they are of llic colour of the Re- 
tina of the Eye. 

Jn the whole of their course upon the Lamina Spiralis, 
tliev form a real Retina ; though the reticulated struc- 
ture becomes much less apparent upon the outer part of 
this Lamina, aud upon the continuation of the Membrane 
lining the Gyri, — the Nerves seeming to terminate in a 
sc mi -pellucid. Pulpy Membrane, resembling the Retina of 
the Eye. 

The Membrane upon which the Nerves are expanded, 
is but slightly connected to ihe Periostcnm which lines the 
inner side of the Cochlea, and which, though thin, may 
be readily perceived, being painted with Blood-vessels ; 
■ — nor does it differ from ihe Periosteum lining the Tym-

The Fasciculus, which belongs to the Yestible and Se- 
micircular Canals, forms at first a Plexus, then a, Gangli-

subdivided into smaller Holes by Cribriform PI;

Of these Branches, small Filaments pass through the 
Macula Cribrosa in ilie Inferior I'o-sula of [he Meatus 
Auditorius Internus, to the Alveus Communis vcl Saccu- 
lus Ycstibuli, 

A small Branch goes through another Cribriform Hole 
in the Inferior Fossula, to the Ampulla of the Posterior 
Membranaceous Semicircular Canal. 

A Branch, larger than any of the former, enters the 
posterior Holes in the upper Fossula of the Meatus In- 
terims, to be dispersed upon the Ampullx of the Superior 
and Exterior Membranaceous Canals. 

The Nerves, after reaching the Saceulus Ycstibuli and 
the different Ampulla:, are spread out upon them, as in 
the Cochlea, in the form of a net-work ; the Fibres of 
which, by degrees becoming pellucid, disappear upon the 
beginning of the Membranaceous Canals. 

Portio Dura.— The Portio Dura, or Facial Nerve, 
separates -from the Portio Mollis at the bottom of the 

Meatus Auditorius Interims, and, by Ihe anterior Hole 
in ihe upper Fossula at the bottom of the Meatus, enters 
the Aqiucdnclns Fallopii. 

Alter getting into the Canal, it receives the retrograde 
Nerve from the Second Branch of the Fifth Pair, which 
enters by the Foramen Lin om in at urn on the fore side 
of the Pars Petrosa. * 

It seuds Twigs through Foramina in ihe sides of the 
Aqueduct, to the Mastoid Cells and to the Stapedius. 

A little before its exit from the Aqueduct in the Adult, 
but at the outer cud of it. in the Ftetus, it gives off" a re- 
flected Branch, termed Chorda Tympam\ which passes 
between the long Processes of the Malleus and Incus, 
and over the Membrana Tvmpaui. 'lab. LXXVI1. 
Fig. 8. Tab. LXXIXA. 

The Chorda Tympani goes afterwards in a Fissure at 
the outside of the Eustachian Tube, and soon after 
it has got out of the Cranium, it joins the Lingual 
Branch of the Fifth Pair. 

In its passage, it supplies the Muscles of the Malleus, 
and the Membranes, fitc. of the Tympanum. 

The Portio Dura afterwards parses out of the Aque- 
duct by the Foramen Stylo-mastoideum, and is at first 
lodged deep, being situated in a hollow behind the Paro- 
tid Gland. Tab. CLXXXVII. r. 

Here it gives a small Occipital Branch, which scuds 
Twin-, to the back part of the Ear, and terminates in the 
Oblique Muscles of the Head. 

It sends a Branch to the Pi gas trie us, and another to 
ihe Niylo-hyeiideus ; gives oil' a Filament which joins the 
Auricular Branch of the Inferior Maxillary Nerve, and 
goes to the fore part of the Ear ; and is connected by an- 
other small Filament at the under part of the Ear, with 
Branches of the Sympathetic Nerve which run along the 
External Carotid Artery. 

It also furnishes Filaments to the Parotid Glaud, and 
then perforates it; dividing into large Branches, which 
join, separate, and n join, different times, so as to form a 
Plexus on the side of the Face. 

This Plexus is expanded in such a manner as to con- 
stitute what has been called by some, Fe3 Anserimts, and 
is divided into the following Sets of Branches, viz. 

The Temprirat lirain-hcv, which ascend upon the side 
of the Head, to be distributed upon the Temple; some 
running over, others under the Branches of the Tem- 

Eoral Artery, and forming several joinings with the 
rontal Branches of the first part of the Fifth Pair of 
Nerves : , 

The Superior Facial Branches, which are dispersed 
upon the Orbicularis Otuli, and the parts in general about 
the outer Angle of the Eye, communicating in various 
places above and below the Orbit, with the first and se- 
cond K randies of the Filth Pair : 

The Middle Facial liranch, or the Great Facial 
Kent; which rims across the Masseter, and divides into 
many Branches, to be dispersed upon the Cheek, and 
side of the Nose and Lips : 



They are connected with the Branches of the Superior 
Facial, and rear the comer of the Mouth, with others of 
the second and third parts of the Fifth Pair. They have 
likewise some communications with deep Branches of 
these two Nerves, which pass outwards between the Mas- 
seter and Buccinator ; 

The Inferior Facial Branches, which proceed along 
the side of the Under Jaw, to be dispersed upon the 
parts covering if, and upon the Under Lip ; and connect 
themselves with some of the Middle Facial Branches, 
and with others belonging to the third part of the Fifth 

The Dcscctiih'/iz, or Subi utaneou.t Ccreical Branches, 
some of which run forwards under the Lower Jaw, and 
others downwards, near the External Jugular Vein, to 
die Superficial Muscles, and to the Integuments at lire 
side and upper part of the N< < k. w here they form com- 
munications with the Inferior Facial Branches, and with 
different Branches of the Upper Spinal Cervical Nerves. 

The ErGHTH Paiji arise from the Medulla Oblongata, 
at the sides of the Bases of the Corpora Olivaria, aud each 
consists, on each side, of the Nervua Glosso-phanngeus 
and Pars Vaga. Tab. LXIX. n, o. Tab. CLXXXIII. 

The Glosso-Pharyngeus is the smaller of the two, 
being only a little larger than one of the Nerves of the 
Fourth Pair. 

The Pars Vaga comes off immediately under the 
former, and is composed of several separated Fasciculi, 
which are soon collected into a single Cord. 

The two Nerves, passing outwards, go through the 
Base of the Cranium, immediately before the end of the 
Lateral Sinus, by the Hole common to the Occipital 
aud Temporal Bones, and are separated from each other, 
and from the Sinus, by a small Process of the Dura 

The Glosso-pharyngeus, termed also Lingualis Late- 
ralis, upon its exit from the Cranium, scuds a Branch 
backwards, which joins the Diga-hit Hunch of the For- 

A little lower, it gives off Blanches, which, with others 
from the Pharyngeal Branch of the. Eighth Pair, and 
from the Great Sympathetic Nerve, form a Plexus which 
embraces the Internal Carotid Artery, and afterwards 
sends Branches along the Caroticus Communis to the 

Still lower, it gives Branches which communicate 
with others belonging to the Pharyngeal Nerve, and go

The GloEso-pharyngeus, after sending a Twig or two 
to the Tonsil, to the upper part of the Pharynx, and 
Membrane of the Epiglottis, divides into many Branches, 
which run partly to the margin, and partly to the middle 
of the root of the Tongue, supph ing, especially, the Pa- 
pilla; Majores, aud the parts in their neighbourhood.

Jl descends in the Neck at the outer and back part of 
the common Carotid Artery, to which it is closely mined, 
being included along with it in the same common Miculh 
of Cellular Substance. 

At the upper part of the Neck, it transmits a Branch, 
called Pharyngeus, to the Pharynx; and imnie-diaielv 
afterwards, a larger one, termed Laryngeus Superior, to 
the Larynx ; aud near the top of the Thorax, it sends a 
Filament, and sometimes two, to the Heart.

Internal Carotid Artery. 

Near the origin of this Artery, it sends Filaments 
which join others from the upper part of the Great Sym- 
pathetic, and creep along the Common Carotid. 

Upon the middle of the Pharynx, it expands into a 
Gangliform Plexus, from which many small Branches an 
sent out, to be distributed upon the three Constrictors of 
the corresponding side of the Pharynx -, one or two Fila- 
ments uniting above with the Glosso-pharyngeus, and 
others below with the Laryngeus Superior. 

The Laryngeus Superior, 'lab. L'XCII. No. 29. 30. 
descends obliquely forwards between the Carotid Arteries 
and Pharynx; and, behind ilie origin of the Carotids, is 
divided into a large Internal or Superior, aud a snialJ Ex- 
ternal or Inferior Branch. 

The Internal Branch passes forwards between the Os 
Hyoides and Superior Comu of the Thyroid Cartilage. 

It divides into numerous Branches, sonic of which go 
to the Arytenoid Gland, and to the Arytcnoidcus Obli- 
quus et Transversus, and others to the Glandular Mem-

lion of the Medulla Obion, 
from being contained in the 

It is invested by the same Membranes which cover the 
Brain, and has an additional partial Involucruin from the 
Ligamentous Membrane which lines the Bodies of the 
Vertebrae, and which has been already taken notice of in 
the description of the Ligaments. 

jOn the inner side of thu Ligamentous Lining, the Du- 
ra Mater is situated, which passes out of the Cranium by 
the Foramen Magnum Occipitis, and forms a Cylindrical 
Sheath, which loosely envelopes the Spinal Marrow, and 
extends as far as the Os Sacrum. 

It is more elastic than the Dura Mater of the Brain, 
and thereby admits more readily of the different motions 
of the Spine. 

At its egress from the Cranium, it is intimately con- 
nected to the beginning of the above-mentioned common 
Ligamentous Lining, and is also united with the Pericra- 
nium at the edge of the Foramen Magnum of the Occi- 
pital Bone. 

Below the first Vertebra of the Neck, this intimate 
connection between the Dura Mater and inner Ligament 
of the Vertebrae is discontinued ; a Cellular, Fatty, and 
Slimy Substance, which surrounds the Dura Mater 
throughout the rest of the Canal, being interposed be- 
tween that Membrane and the Ligament. 

The Dura Mater is only in contact with the Tunica 
Arachnoidca, and this also only in contact with the Fia 
Mater, aud lying so loosely over the latter as to be sepa- 
rated from it with facility through the whole length of 
the Spine. 

The Spinal Marrow, like the Brain, consists of a Cor- 
tical and Medullary Substance, but differs in this respect, 
that the Cineritious Mat ter is placed within the Medullary. 

Upon the Surface of the Spinal Marrow, while lying 
in its natural situation, many transverse Wrinkles or 
Folds are observed, which allow it to be extended in the 
motions of the Vertebrae. 

It is a little flattened on its anterior and posterior Sur- 
faces, and is larger near the under part of the Neck, and 
at the top of the Loins, where the great Nerves of tlit 
Extremities are sent off, than in the other parts of the 

It is divided into two lateral Portions or Cords, which 
are separated from each other externally by an anterior 
and posterior Fissure continued from the Medulla Oblon- 
gata ; and each of the lateral Portions is iu some measure 
subdivided by a superficial Furrow, iuto a large anterior 
and small posterior Cord. 

The lateral Portions are firmly united together by fine 

Cellular Substance, but, without lacerating either, may 
be separated from eaeli other, before as well as behind, ro 
near their middle, where they are connected by a Layer 
of Ciiierkious Mailer, which pa.iE.ed from the one Cord

The Body of the Spiual Marrow descends in the Child 
to the Twelfth Dorsal, and in the Adult :u far as the Se- 
cond Lumbar Vertebra, aud terminates there by a Coni- 
cal point, which is concealed by Funiculi of Nerves. 

Each of the lateral Portions of the Spinal Marrow 
sends oft* from its anterior aud posterior pares, flat Fasci- 
culi of Nervous Filameuts, which are placed opposite 
their fellows on the other side. 

Several of the Fasciculi of the Cervical Nerves detach 
Filaments to those immediately above or below them ; 
and the same thing is occasionally observed, of some of 
the Bundles of Dorsal Nerves. 

The anterior and posterior Fasciculi perforate the Du- 
ra Mater, from the inner part of which each Fasciculus 
is furnished with a proper Sheath, which is continued 
along it, and the Sheaths are connected by Cellular Sub- 
stance only, till they get between the Vertebrae. 

Between the anterior aud posterior Fasciculi of Spinal 
Nerves, and between the Tuni.a Araihiioidra and Pia 
Mater, a small Ligamentous (.'mil. termed L^/tmaiti/m 
iJtittiaitatiim, is situated, which is attached to the Du- 
ra Mater, where that Membrane comes out from the Cra- 
nium, and accompanies the Spinal Marrow toils inferior 

It adheres by Cellular Substance to the Pia Mater, 
and sends off from its opposite sides slender Cords, in 
the form of Denticu/i, which carry the Tunica Arach- 
noidea along with them, and, running more or less in a 
transverse direction, are fixed, each by minute Fibres, to 
the Dura Mater, in the Interstices of the Fasciculi. 

The Ligamenta Denticulata of the right and left sides 
incorporate with the Pia Mater at the inferior extremity 
or conical point of the Spinal Marrow, and form a Liga- 
mentous Filament, which perforates the under end of the 
Dura Mater, and is fixed by small Fibres to the Mem- 
branes covering the Os Coccygis, iu the manner the Den- 
ticuli are fixed to the Dura Mater. 

It is termed by some Authors Ligament urn Pia' Ma- 
trix, and was considered by the Ancients as the Fortieth 
I'u-'i .if Nerves. 

It assists in preventing the Spinal Marrow and theten- 
cVr origin of the \iT\es from being ovtr-iretched.

Nravus ACCESSORIES. — The Accessory Nerve belongs 
in some respect to this Class of Nerves; but having 
^art of its origin within the Head, and from its passing 
out with one of the Cerebral Nerves, it lias been already 
described along with these. 

Sub-Occipital Nerve, Tab. CXCI. Fig. 2. v, v.— 
This was formerly called Tenth Nerve of the Head, and 
by many at present is termed First of the Neck. 

It arises from the beginning of the Spinal Marrow 
"by an anterior and posterior Fasciculus, like the rest of 
the Spinal Nerves; and, like these also, it has its Gang- 
lion where it passes out between the Bones. 

It perforates the Dura Mater immediately under the 
entrance of the Vertebral Artery, and goes forwards under 
that Vessel, and over the Transverse Process of the At- 

It afterwards appears in the fore part of the Neck, 
and is connected above by an Arch to the root of the 
Ninth Nerve, and below by a similar Arch to the first 
Cervical Nerve. 

Anteriorly, it is joined by one or two short Branches 
to the upper Ganglion of the Great Sympathetic Nerve. 

It afterwards divides into Branches, which are dis- 
tributed upon the Recti ct Obliqui Capitis, and upon some 
of the deep Extensors of the Head. 

The First Cervical Nekve, Tab. CXCII. No. 45. 
comes out between the Atlas and Vertebra Dentata, 
and immediately splits into two parts ; the first of which 
passes forwards under the Transverse Process of the 
Atlas, aod is joined by an Arch with the Nervus Ac- 
cessorius, and by Branches with the Ninth Pair: It 
is also connected by a soft Ganglit'orm Pellucid Root 
with the upper Ganglion of the Sympathetic Nerve, send- 
ing a Branch downwards, to be fixed to the second Cer- 
vical Nerve, and also small Branches to the Muscles 
connected with the fore part of the \ erttbrae. 

The other, which is the principal part, goes backwards, 
-aod, after sending Branches to the Extensors of the Head 
and Neck, perforates these, aod forms the Proper Occi- 
pital Nerve. 

The Occipital Nerve ascends upon the Head with the 
Artery of that name, and terminates upon the Muscles 
and Integuments upon the upper and back part of the 
Cranium ; some of its Filaments anastomosing with others 
belonging to the First Branch of theTifth, and Portio 
Dura of the Seventh Pair. 

The Second Cervical Nerve, Tab. CXCII. No. 
46. after escaping from between the Bones, gives off a 
Branch, which perforates ihe Muscles connected to the 
fore and lateral parts of the Vertebrae, and joins the middle 
Ganglion of the Sympathetic Nerve. 
Vol. III. T 

It sends another Branch of considerable size downwards 
to the Trunk of the Third Cervical Nerve. 

It sends several Branches to the Sterao-Mastoideus, 
behind which it is connected by an Arch, and still fanner 
out by a Filament, with the Nervus Accessorius. 

It is afterwards divided into several Branches ; one 
of which passes downwards some way upon the Externa! 
Jugular Vein, and, together with a Branch from the 
First Cervical, i'uniu, an Aicli i\uh the Dcscendens of the 
Ninth Pair. 

It gives off a small Root, which is united with others 
in the formation ot the Diaphragmatic Nerve. 

A large Branch comes out from it behind the Sterno- 
Mastoideus, which, turning over this Muscle, scuds off the 
following Nerves, viz. 

The Inferior Cutaneous Nerve of the Neck, which 
passes forwards to the parts under the Lower Jaw: 

The Middle Cutaneous Scree, which runs towards the 
Angle of the Jaw : 

The Great "Posterior .lurk utar Nerve, which furnishes 
an anterior Branch to the under part of the Ear, and a 
posterior Branch dividing into many others which go to 
the back part of the Ear and Temple. 

The Cutaneous and Auricular Nerves are dispersed upon 
the Platysma Myoides, Integuments of the side of the 
Neck and Head, the Parotid Gland, and External Ear ; 
and have several Communications with the Portio Dura 
of the Seventh Pair. 

The remainder of the Second Cervical is distributed 

3 ion the Levator Scapulae, and the Extensors of the 
cck and Head. 

The Third Cervical Nerve, Tab. CXCII. No. 52. 
after emerging from between ihe Vertebra, sends down 
a Branch to the Trunk of the Fourth Cervical, and an- 
other Branch, ■ which forms the principal root of the Dia- 
phragmatic Nerve. 

A Third Branch perforates the Muscles on the side of 
the Vertebra?, and joins the middle Ganglion of the Sym- 
pathetic Nerve. 

A Small filament connects the Third Cervical with 
the Descendcns of the Ninth Pair. 

The Nerve is afterwards divided into External and 
Internal Branches. 

The External Branches form Anastomoses with the 
Nervus Accessorius, near the upper part of the Scapula ; 
while the Internal, after furnishing Twigs to the Jugu- 
lar Glands, are dispersed by several large Branches upon, 
the Muscles and Integuments at the under part of the 
Neck, and upper part of the Shoulder. 

The Fourth Cervical, Tab. CXCII. No. 62. sends

In the Axillary Plexus the Nervous Fibrillar are so in- 
termised, tliat each of the Trunks passing out from it,

the Nerves which enter iiilo its composition. 

The Axilla' 1/ Pit. at* sends lhauches to the Subscapn- 
laris. Teres Major, and Laiissimus Dorsi, and furnishes 
the External Thoracic Ntnrs which accompany the 
Blood-vessels of that name to the I'ccloi'ales, Mamma, 
iud integuments. 

The Ple\us afterwards divides into Nerves, most of 
which are remarkably iar^c, to supply the Superior Ex- 
tremity.— They are as follow :

It runs down at the inner and fore part of the Arm, 
near the Badial JN erve. 

It sometimes gives a small Branch to the upper nart 
oftheCoraco-Bracbialis and Biceps; and iartner down, 
it gives others to the lutegnments and Coats of the Blood! 

About the middle of the Aim, it splits into tw» 
Branches,— an Internal and External. 

The Internal Brunch, uliieli h, rather the smaller of 
the two, passes before the Basilic Vein, to the inner part 
of the Elbow, where it divides into Branches ; two of 
which, larger than the rest, turn obliquely over the Heads 
oi the rk'Miis nl the Daud, to bedispersed upon the inner 
and back part of the Fore Arm. 

The Eilernal Branch divides into several others, be- 
hind the Median Basilic Vein, which descend on the An- 
terior and Ulnar side of the Fore Ami, as far as the "Wrist. 

They pass partly over and partly under the Subcuta* 
furnishing Twigs to these, and vanishing 

ed C'iitaneux Minor Internal of Wrisberc, which, like 
the rest of the Nerves of the Superior Extremity, lakes 
its origin from the Axillary Plexus ; but is more particu- 
larly connected with the IJlu&r Nerve. It is consider, 
ably smaller than the Nervus Cntaneus. 

It soon separates from the Ulnar, running afterwards 
between it and the inner side of the Arm. 

A little below the Axilla, it splits into two Branches: 

The smaller, turning to the posterior part of the Arm, 
is divided into Filaments, which are chiefly dispersed upen 
the Triceps and its Integuments : 

The larger Branch descends at the inner edge of the 
Triceps, and vanishes upon the under end of that Muscle, 
and upon the Skin of the Elbow : 

The Musculo-Cutaneus, called also Pcrfiratu Ca- 
serii, Tab. CXCIV. Fig. 1. No. i. which consists of 
Fibrillze from almost all the Nerves enuring the Plexus. 

The Cord formed by these Fibrill* perforates obliouely 
the upper part of the Coraco-Braehialis, to which it gives 

It afterwards passes between the Biceps and Brachials 
Interims, furnishing Branches to both. 

At the Elbow, it gels to the outside of the Tendon of 
the Biceps, and runs behind the Median Cephalic Vein. 

From thence it descends in the Fore Arm, between the 
Supinator Longus and Integuments ; furnishing Branches 
to the latter, as far as the root of the Thumb and back 
part of the Hand: 

The Spiral, or Spiral-Muscular Nerve, Tab. 
CXCV. Fig. I. r, which is apparently formed by all th« 
Nerves entering into the Axillary I'lexus, and when the 
Sheaths of the Nerves are .slit open, is found to be c

It is at first situated between (lie Axillary Artery and 
the Ulnar Nerve, and passes obliquely downwards be- 
tween two of the Heads „f the Triceps Extensor Cubili, 
and afterwards behind the Os Humeri, to the outside of 
the Elbow. 

From thence it proceeds among the Muscles of the 

Jlhe E 

Radial side of the Fore Ami, as far as the Hand. 

While passing behind the Os Humeri, it gives several 
Brandies of considerable size to the different Heads of 
the Triceps; some of them accompanying the Branches 
of the Arteiia Spiralis, and terminating oil the Heads of 
the Extensors of the Hand. 

Immediately behind the Body of the Os Humeri, it 
transmits a Subcutaneous Branch, which is distributed 
upon the Muscles and Integuments on the posterior part 
of the Fore Arm, anastomosing at last with the Nerves 
on the back part of the Hand. 

The Trunk of the Nerve, having arrived at the Elbow, 
is lodged in a Fissure between the Brachialis Internus 
and Radial Extensors of the Carpus, and there gives off 
other Branches to the Extensors and to the Supinators 
of the Hand. 

At the Head of the Radius, the Trunk of the Nerve 
divides into two nearly equal-sized Branches, — the Super- 
_/ieia/wand Profundus. 

The Supeijici'a/i.t, continued almost straight from the 
Trunk, transmits first a Branch to the Extensores Ra- 
diales and Supinator Longus, and then descends at the 
inner edge of this Muscle along with the Radial Artery. 

A little below the middle of the Radius, it crosses be- 
tween the Tendons of the Supinator and Kxtcnsores Ra- 
diates, and is divided into a Volar and Dorsal Branch. 

The Volar Branch, after sending Twigs to the Annu- 
lar Ligament, is distributed to the Muscles and Integu- 
ments of the Thumb. 

The Dorsal Branch is again subdivided into numerous 
other Branches, some of which go to the Muscles in the 
interval of the M.ia. :n|ul Hon^ of the Thumb and Fore 
Finger, a few rilameiii- being distributed to the Annular 
Ligament; while principal Branches run, one along each 
side of the Fore and Mid Finger, and likewise along the 
Radial side of the Ring Finger. 

The Ramus Profundus, after sending several Branches 
to the Extensores Hadiaksand Supinator Brevis, perfo- 
rates the latter, and gets to the back part of the Fore 

After quitting the Supinator, it descends under the Ex- 
tensor Primi Iuteniodii Pullicia and Extensor Digitorum 
to the back of the Hand. 

In this course, it sends Branches to the different Ex- 
tensors of the Thumb and Fingers, and at length dege- 
nerates into a slender Branch, which, at the Wrist, ad- 
heres closely to the Annular Ligament. It has here * 
Ganglifoim appearance, and is dispersed, partly upon this 
Ligament, and partly on the Membranes and Muscles on 
the back part of the Metacarpus : 

middle and lower part of the Plexus 

Fasciculi from all the Nerves which enter the Plexus, and 

is nearly of a similar size with I he Spiral Nerve. 

It descends in the Arm, along the anterior Surface of 
the Humeral Artery, to which, and to the Deep Veins, 
if adheres closely by Cellular Substance. 

In this course, it does not give off any considerable 
Branches : — Twig;, however, are icnt from it to the Coats 
of the adjacent Vessels. 

At the bending of the Elbow, it slips over the Tendon 
of the Brachialis Internus, and perforates the back part 
of the Pronator Teres. 

It afterwards descends betwen the Flexor Radiali* 
and Musctdus Sublimis, and goes in the middle of the in- 
terval of the Radial aud Ulnar Artery in its way to the 

When it approaches the Fore Arm, it transmits Branches 
to the Pronator Teres and Integuments near that Muscle. 

In the Flexure of the Arm, it furnishes Branches to 
the Pronator, Flexor Radialis, and Flexor Sublimis, and 
an Interosseous Branch, which, in some Subject--, receives 
an addition from the Spiral Nerve. 

The Interosseous Nerve gives Branches to the Flexor 
Longus Pollicis, and to the Flexor Profundus Digitorum, 
descends upon the Interosseous Ligament with the Vessels 
of that name, and terminates in the Pronator Quadratus. 

Near the Hand, it sends a Branch, dividing into others 
which supply the Muscles and Integuments forming the 
Ball of the Thumb. 

The Trunk of the Nerve, having given Branches to 
the Fore Arm, passes under the Annular Ligament of 
the Wrist, where it divides into Branches which are si- 
tuated behind the Aponeurosis Palmaris and Superficial 
Arch of the Arteries. 

The principal Branches iu the Palm ( 

asiderable size 

are distributed to the Thumb and Fingers. Of these, 
two go to the Thumb, aud one to the Radial side of the 
Fore Finger: the rest come off from two forked Trunks, 
near the Heads of the Metacarpal Bones, and supply the 
adjacent sides of the Fore aud Middle, and of the Middle 
and Ring Fingers. 

These Branches send Twigs through the Aponeurosis 
to the Integuments of the Palm, and others to the Mnsculi 
Lnnibricales ; after which they accompany the Arteries 
sent out from the Superficial Palmar Arch, bestowing 
Twigs to the corresponding parts of the Fingers, at the 
points of which they terminate, by numerous Fibres. 

The Ulnar Nerve, Tab. CXCIII. Fig. 1. X, F.g. 
2. r, whicfc, like the former, is of great size, and comes 
off chiefly from the hist Cervical .iwd first Dorsal Nerve. 

It extends aloug the inside «,!' the Triceps, frequently 
perforating some of its Fleshy Fibres, and, near the Elbow, 
slants a little backwards, to get into a Groove between 
ihP inner Condyle of the Os Humeri and Olecranon of 

I I'lua. 



From thence it passes to the Fore Arm. where, after 
perforating the Heads of the Flexor Muscles, it joins the 
Ulnar Artery a little below its origin, and accompanies 
that Vessel, — running behind it all the way to the. lland. 

Under the Axilla, it sometimes receives a Branch from 
the Spiral Nerve ; and from this connection, or from the 
Trunk of the Ulnar Nerve itself, a Subcutaneous Branch 
is sent off, which runs between the Triceps and Integu- 
ments ; furnishing Branches to the latter for a consider- 
able way along the Fore Arm. 

Near the under end of the Os Humeri, a Twig or two 
commonly go to the inner end of the Triceps. 

Under the bending of the Elbow, a Branch in given oat 
lo be dispersed upon the Belly of the Flexor Ulnaris. 

Immediately below the former, another Branch is pro- 
duced, which is distributed upon the Flexor Profundus 

About the middle of the Fore Ann, a Filament is 
transmitted, which adheres to the Anerv, furnish- 
ing small Twigs to the Sheath and Coats of the Artery, 
and terminating in tin? cun'esponJiug parts of the V\rist, 
and Integument.* of the Palm. 

Near the end of the Ulna, a considerable Brauch, 
termed Durso&S, is sent out, which, turning between the 
Flexor Ulnaris and Ulna, is directed to the back part of 
the Hand. 

The Dorsal Nerve sends Branches to the Integuments 
of the Wrist and Metacarpus, which have various Anas- 
tomoses with others of the- Spiral Nerve. 

It sends off a Branch, which proceeds along the Ulnar 
side of the Little Finger ; and at the Heads of the Meta- 
carpal Bones, another splitting into two Branches, winch 
run along the adjacent sides of the Auricular and Ring 

The Trunk of the Nerve passes with the correspond-

Between the Branches of the Radial and Ulnar Nerves, 
different AjiupIoii.o.'h/-. are liv^uently found ; and the same 
may be observed between the Nerves of the Palmar and 
Dorsal sides of the Fingers.— Besides the Nerves of the 
Superior Extremity sent from the Brachial Plexus, there 
are others belonging to it, which take their origin from 
the Intercostal Nerves, and which may therefore be term- 
ed Intercasto-Humerales. 

The Intercosto-Humeral Nerves, Tab. CXCIII. Fig. 
I. i, A, /, consist of a Branch from the Second, and of 
another from the Third Intercostal Nerves ; both of which 
pass out at the fore and lateral parts of the Thorax, the 
one under the Second, and the other under the Third Bib. 

The First Nerve is joined by a small Branch with the 
Cutaneous Nerve, or with i he CutanOU htierms of YVris- 
berg, and is afterwards dispersed by numerous Filaments 
upon the Axillary Glands, and upon the Integuments of 
the Axilla and of the inner part of the Arm. 

The Second Nerve is connected by one or more Branch- 
es with the First, and sends some Twigs to the Axillary 
Glands; but is chiefly distributed upon the Integuments 
of the back part of the Arm, which it supplies « ith man) 
Branches— some of them extending as far as the Elbow.

The Pars Vaga of the Left Side, Tab. CXCIX. 
Tab. CXCV1II. descending from the Great Esophageal 
Plexus of the Eighth Pair, ci-c-i [is along die fore part of 
the tardia, detaches Filaments to the Left Hepatic 
Plexus, and divides into many Ei-aiiclics, which are dis- 
tributed to the upper and Left Portion of the Stomach. 

The Right Pars Vaga passes upon the posterior 
part of the Canlia, ami splits into two Fasciculi ; one of 
which goes to the root of the Hepatic Plexus, and to the 
Ca-liac Ganglion, while the other, which is the principal 
one, is dispersed by numerous Branches upon the under 
and Left Portion of the Stomach. 

The Nerves of the two Fasciculi have- several connec- 
tions with each other, about the Cardia, and along the 
small Curvature of the Stomach, and form a Plexus, by 
some Authors termed Coronary, from which Branches 
extend along the small Curvature, as far as the Pylorus. 

The Ramus Sflanchnicus, and Splanchnicus Se- 
cundaria, Tab. CXCIX. Tab. CCII. have their ori- 
gins from the Sympathetic, and perforate the upper and 
lateral part of the inferior Muscle of the Diaphragm, — 
as already mentioned in the Description of the Nerves of 
the Thorax. 

After entering the Abdomen, they expand their Fibres, 
and incorporate with the lateral part of the Great Semi- 
lunar Ganglion. 

The Semilunar Ganglion, Tab. CC. </, d> d, is 
formed by the Rami Splanchnici of the Right and Left 
Svm pathetic*, i\ itii the addition of the Branches of the 
Eighth Pair. 

It is of a long curved shape, with the convex edge 
undermost, and is composed of many smaller Ganglia, 
termed Cceliac, which are of different sizes and of irre- 

* The Celiac Ganglia are placed over the Aorta, 
about the roots of the Catiac and Superior Mesenteric 
Arteries, and extend some yay upon the Fleshy Pillars 
■j l ilic Diaphragm. * 

From tlie Cosliac Ganglia innumerable Nerves issue 
on all sides, forming a Plexus, termed bj some Authors 

Solar, which extends along the Trunks and Braaclies ol 
the Cadiac and Superior Mtscntciic Arteries. 

The Nerves upon these Arteries are so intermixed with 
each other, and with Cellular Substance, as to form con- 
fused Webs ; the name of Plextu, however, is still retain- 
ed, and the particular name of each Plexus is derived 
from the Artery which it surround:-), or the Viscus to 
which it belongs. 

The Hepatic Plexus, Tab. CCI. after giving Twigs 
to the Renal Clauds, -ends Filaments to tlie Diaphragm, 
which accompany the Diaplii -agm-.n ic Arteries, and anas- 
tomose with Brandies of the Phrenic Nerves. 

It afterwards divides into Right and Left Plexuses, 
corresponding with tlie Right and Left Branches of the 
Hepatic Artery, or with the Right and Left Trunks, 
when such are present. 

The Left Hepatic Plexus iurrmlics -veral Branches 
to the Stomach, which intermix with those of tlie Eighth 
Pair, upon the small Curvature. 

The Right Hepatic Plexus imparts Branches to the 
corresponding parts of the Pancit-as, to the small end of 
the Stomach and beginning of the Duodenum, and gives 
origin to the Right Gaslro- Epiploic Plexus, which aitemf.- 
the Artery of the same name, distributing its Filaments 
to the Great Curvature of the Stomach, and to the Omen- 
tum Majus. 

The Hepatic Plexuses surround the Hepatic Arten 
and Vena Portae, and, after sending several Filaments 
to the Biliary Ducts and Gall- Bladder, follow the Branch- 
es of the Blood-vessels through the Substance of the Lit cr. 

The Splenic Plexus, Tab. CXCIX. composed of 
several small Filaments, surrounds the Splenic Artery, 
gives Twigs lo the Pancreas, and then accompanies the 
Vessels into the Splet 

The Superior Mesenteric Plexus, Tab. CC. for 
a Vagina, which surrounds, and in a great part 
tin Trunk of the corresponding Artery. 

From this Plexus, numberless Eilamuits, many oi

one Branch in particular, termed Saphtcnus, descending 
upon the Leg. 

The Branches are as follow : 

The Cutanea Medina, Tab. CCV. Fig. 1. m. which 
descends in the fore part of the Thigh, opposite to the 
-'_ edge of the Rectus, and supplies the Integuments

between the Sartorius and Triceps, and after giving Fi- 
laments to the Integuments at the inside of the Thigh,

The Deep Branches of the Crural Nerve, which are 
considerably larger than the Superficial, go to the Pec- 
tineus and Triceps, to the Sartorius and Gracilis, and to 
the four Extensors of the Leg, and also furnish Twigs to 
the Femoral Blood-vessels. 

The Nervus Saphtenus, Tab. CCVI. Fig. I. r, Tab. 
CCV1I. descends between the Sartorius and Triceps, and 
afterwards behind the Tendon of the former, to the inner 
side of the Tibia, 

Under the Knee it gives off a Branch, named by Fis- 
cher Saphtenus Minor, Tab. CCVI. Fig. 1. y, which 
goes down a little behind the Saphamus, and, furnishing 
Filaments to the Integuments of the inner and back part 
nf the Leg, terminates behind the Malleolus Internes, on 
the Integuments of the Foot. 

The Trunk of the Saphamus attends the Vena Sa- 
phana Major, sending many Nervous Threads oblique- 
ly forwards to the Internments on the inner and fore part 
of the Leg, and is at length consumed upon the Skin 
and Cellular Substance of the upper and inner part of the 

Sacral Nerves. 

The Sacral Nerves consist of small Posterior, and 
large Anterior Trunks. 'Jab. CCII. CCI1I. CCIV. 

The Posterior Sacral Nerves pass out by the Holes 
in the back part of the Os Sacrum, and arc at first con- 
cealed by the Ligamentous and Tendinous Expansion 
winch covers that Bone. 

After their exit from the Sacral Foramina, they anas- 
tomose with each other, and with some of the Branches of 
ihc Gluteal Nerves. 

They send out a few tender Fibrilke, which are dis- 
persed upon the Muscles cou-ring the back part of the 
Os Sacrum, and upon the Glutei ,md their Integuments. 

Anterior Sacral Nerves, Tab. CCII. CCUJ* 
CCIV. Of the Anterior Sa< iaK, the two uppermost are 
the largest; the rest suddenly diminish in size, the last 
being the smallest oi the Spinal Nerves. 

They go through the Holes in the fore part of the 
Os Sacrum, and, soon after their exit, arc united with 
each other, and with Branches of the Sympathetic Nerve. 

The First, Second, and Third Sacrals, join into 
a Trunk, which receives the common one sent down 
from the Fourth and Fifth Lumbars, and forms a Plexus 
which sends out the Sciatic, the largest Nerve of the 

The roots of the Sciatic Nerve give origin to the Fas- 
ciculi which compose the Pudic Nerve, formerly descri- 
bed, and also the Gluteal Nerves which are dispersed up- 
on the Muscles of the Hips. 

The Gluteal Nerves, Tab. CCH. run in two Fas- 
ciculi, a Superior, arising immediately from the Trunk 
formed by the two last Lumbars, and an Inferior, coming 
off from the two last Lumbars and first Sacral. 

The Superior Fasciculus goes through the upper part 
of the Notch of the Os Ilium, to be dispersed upon the 
two smaller Glutei Muscles. 

The Inferior Ftixeicu/ns parses through the under part 
of the same Notch, and below the Piriformis, tobedistii- 
buted upon the Gluteus Maxim us and Integuments. 

The Fourth Sacral scuds Filaments to the Hypogas- 
tric Plexus, others to the Muscles aod Ligaments of the 
Os Coccygis ; the rest pas, outwards to the- Muscles and 
Integuments about the Anus. 

The Fifth, which is scarcely above the size of a Fi- 
lament, passes forwards between the extremity of the 
Os Sacrum and the beginning of the Oo Coc< ygis. After 
giving Twigs to the Coccvgeus, it peif'oiatc:. the Sacro- 
Sciatic Ligaments, and terminates in the Muscles and 
lutcguments of the Anus. 

Sciatic Nerve, Tab. CCVII. Fig. 2. 4.— The Scia- 
tic or Ischiatic Nerve passes obliquely through the Notch 
of the Ilium, under the Pyriformis. It goes afterward* 
over the other short Rotator Muscles, and is placed be- 
tween the Tuber Ischii and Trochanter Major, where it 
is covered by the Gluteus Maximus. 

After leaving the Pelvis, it descends in the back part 
of the Thigh, first between the long Flexors and Ad- 
ductor Magnus, and then between the latter and Os Fe- 
moris, to the Ham, where it obtains the name of Pop/i- 

In this course, it gives out the following Blanche*, 
which supply the Muscles and Integuments on the back 
part of the Thigh, viz. 

Twigs to the Rotators of the Thigh, which come off 
from it alter its passage through the Sciatic Notch : 

The Cutaneus Superior Posterior, Tab. CCVI. 
Fig. 2. 4. which arises within the Pelvis, and, passing 



out (villi the Sciatic, is divided into Brunches, some of 
which are reflected to the Scrotum in the Male, and to 
the posterior parts of the Labia in the Female ; and in 
both, to the Skin about the Anus and Perinceum. — The 
principal Branched of this Nerve pass downwards, supply- 
ing the Integuments of the back part of the Thigh, as far 

Thigh, and vanishes in the Skin, a little farther do* 
the other, termed Cutaneus Internus Inferior, which 
arises near the former, goes down the posterior part of 
the Thigh, and then, descending upon the inner Head of 
the Gastrocnemius Externus, terminates in the Integu- 
ments of the Calf of the Leg : 

A Large Common Trunk, and sometimes, instead of 
it, separate Branches, which arise near the middle of the 
Thigh, and are distributed to the Adductor Magnus, Semi- 
membranosus, Biceps, and Semi-tendinosus. 

Nervus Popliteus, Tab. CCVII. Fig. 2.— The Po- 
pliteal Nerve is situated between the Ham-strings, and 
between the Skin and Popliteal Blood-vessels. 

A little above the bending of the Knee, it is divided 
into a Small External, and a Large Internal Branch ; the 
former named Popliteus Externus, or Fibular, and the 
latter Popliteus Internus, or Tibial Nerve. 

The Tibial and Fibular Nerves adhere, for some way, 
by Cellular Substance ; and even the Trunk of the Scia- 
tic may be split into these two Nerves for a considerable 
way up the Thigh. 

The Fibular, Tab. CCVII. Fig. 2. n, termed also 
Peroneal Nerve, sends off, at its beginning, the Cu- 
taneus Externus, winch is a small Branch giving Twigs 
inder end of the Biceps, and which, after running 
\, disappears 

tnd after anastomosing with a Branch of 
the Tibialis, goes along the outer part of the Leg, and 
terminates in the Integuments of that side of the Foot. 

The Fibular Nerve afterwards passes over the Head 
of the Fibula, and divides into Superficial and Deep 
Branches, which supply the Muscles aud Integuments of 
the outer and fore part of the Leg. 

The Superficial Fibular crosses over the Fibula, im- 
mediately under its articulation, aud, perforating the Pe- 
roneus Longus, and going over the Brcvis, it gives Branch- 
es to both, and afterwards becomes Subcutaneous, about 
the middle of the outer part of the Leg. 

It sends Branches to the Metatarsus, and to the Ex- 
tensor Digitorum Brevis j and others, which, after anas- 
tomosing upon the upper part of the Foot, furnish Dorsal 
Branches to the larger Toes. 

The Deep Fibular Nerve crosses over the Fibula, im- 
mediately above the former, and divides into several 

A Reflected Branch to the soft parts of the Joint : 

A Branch to the Peroneus Longus : 

A Branch to the Tibialis Anticus ; 

Branches to the Extensor Pollicis, and Extensor Di- 
gitorum Longus : 

Filaments which creep along the Periosteum of the 
Tibia, and others which adhere to the Coals of the Tibial 

The longest Branch of the Nerve accompanies tlie An- 
terior Tibial Artery, and divides upon the Foot into 
Branches, which have some connections with each other, 
and supply the Extensor Digitorum Brevis Some Fi- 
laments continued from these Branches run to the In- 
terossei, while others of more considerable size go to some 
of the innermost Toes ; one Twig sinking with a Branch 
of the Anterior Tibial Artery, to the Deep Muscles of 
the Sole. 

The Tibial Nerve, Tab. CCVII. Fig. 2. passes be- 
tween the Heads of the Gastrocnemius, and, perforating 
the origin of the Soleus, descends between it and the Flex- 
or Digitorum Longus, upon the Posterior Tibial Artery, 
to the under part of the Leg ; in which course, it sends 
off the following Nerves, viz. 

The Communicant Tibia, Tab. CCVI. Fig. 2. r, 
which accompanies the Vena Saphana Minor in the back 
part of the Leg, and to the outer part of the Foot. 

Behind the Belly of the Gastrocnemius, the Commn- 
nicans sends a Branch to be consumed in the Fat ; and a 
little lower, it anastomoses with the communicating Branch 
of the Fibular Nerve. 

The under part of this Nerve is dispersed upon the 
Integuments of the outer Ankle and adjacent side of the 
Foot, some Branches passing as far as the Dorsal side of 
two or three of the smaller Toes : 

Branches to both Heads of the Gastrocnemius, to tie 
Plant aris, and to the Soleus. 

Near the middle of the Leg, it sends Branches to the 
Tibialis Posticus, to the Flexor Digitorum, and Flexor 

One or two Cutaneous Branches, dispersed upon the 
Skin at the under and inner part of the Leg : 

Near the Ankle, a Branch which passes behind the 
Tendo Achillis, principally to the Integuments of the 
outer and back part of the Foot. 

The Tibial Nerve passes afterwards between the Ar- 
teries aud Os Calcis iuto the Sole. 

In the hollow of the Os Calcis, after detaching Branch- 
es to the parts adjacent, it divides into Internal and Ex- 
ternal Plantar Naves, which are nearly of equal size. 
Tab. CCVII. Fig. 3. 

The Internal Plantar Nerve runs near the inner 
side of the Sole, sends Filaments to the Abductor Pollicis,
